Abstract : The shifting nature of the post-Cold War national security environment requires a close look at the changing role of the U.S.military. The 199Os has seen the direct involvement of U.S. forces in peace operations ranging from humanitarian assistance to peace enforcement. Continued and increased participation of the military in such peace operations will not only have strategic implications but will also effect the operational readiness of U.S. forces.
